The new Renault Captur will be a premium offering from the French carmaker and thus will be positioned above the Duster. Along with the bold lines and the cladding that hint at it's SUV DNA, the Captur also comes with premium features like - projector headlamps, LED daytime running lights, a chrome grille, two-tone body colour option and much more. The top-end model comes with a well-equipped cabin with premium interior, leather upholstery, nice quality plastic for the panels and a centre console that houses a touchscreen infotainment system with audio and navigation. The interface is also similar to the one in the Duster, Lodgy, and even the Kwid, but there is no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.

The Captur will be a premium offering from Renault in India

The new Renault Captur is based on the M0 platform that also houses the Duster and Lodgy in India. A derivative of Nissan's B0 platform. This is unlike the European Captur that is a smaller more compact car, but styling and overall appeal is similar to that car. The M0 Captur that we are getting is also the car sold in Brazil and Russia.
